This Woman Collected All of the Ridiculous Boys' Names She's Encountered on Twitter and They're Hilarious

By Mustafa Gatollari

There's almost no way to talk about this subject without coming off as insensitive so I'm going to do my best to tread lightly, but some cultures and sub-cultures of those cultures are known for abiding by certain rules when it comes to naming their kids.

For example, if you're Albanian, then you've probably got at least three male relatives named Arben, and every other female cousin, or aunt or niece is named Nora or a variation of that name. Now, when I say culture, I also don't exclusively mean ethnicity either, I'm talking about how and where you were raised.

My wife, for example, went to school with two twins named Remy and Martin and later taught an adorable young kid named Yooneeq. A friend of mine once told me about a Dominican woman she met while on vacation calling to her son, his name was Gibe (pronounced Gi-bay). When she asked him what the name meant, the woman replied, "Gibe, you know, like the saint."  My friend didn't know a saint named Gibe, so the woman explained further, "Like the Holiday that's named after him, the one right before Christmas?"

That's right, she thought that Thanksgiving, which she pronounced "Sans-gibay," was a celebration of a "San" or "Saint."
